interesting...

Halo was originally being published as a 3rd person RTS where you would build your army up and than start playing as a soldier (which is master chief ha) and the story was similar...etc etc

BUT this was originally going to be released for PC and MAC (before xbox was even thought about) until microsoft saw the gameplay video at the secret E3 1999 showing and bought the rights to halo from Bungie for 50 million dollars TO BE RELEASED with the original Xbox

and here is a video of the "pre-halo" beta build...

yeah initially it was exclusive to pc and mac and than bill bought out bungie good ol' bill im really glad he did ha, concidering i saw the clips and would probably not like the game at all if it was over the top /3rd person view...its because of microsoft that the game went into a 1st person view woot
